on message and move on to the economy? >> well, is he going to be trying to turn this to the economy, suzanne, but the fact is he will be definitely getting questions about the scandal, about general petraeus, and certainly about his faith in general allen, so that is going to be a topic. he will try to pivot to the economy and to talk about the fiscal cliff, which is obviously his number one priority trying to get that resolved, and we also expect that he will be here talking -- or he will be asked about benghazi. this will be his first press conference since that september 11th attack in egypt that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. as well, would you expect them to be asked about cabinet -- or, pardon me -- in libya, and you would expect him to be asked about the cab -- potential cabinet shake-ups as well. you said he hasn't had an extended press conference since march. that's true. there are a lot of outstanding questions, and he will be asked probably about all of them today, suzanne. >> imagine it's going to be taking a while to get through all of these, and
his first press conference after the election, and he would like to focus on the economy, but i think the majority of the journalists will just as more about petraeus and about general allen. the cia had eight directors in the past seven years, and it is bad for the cia, bad for the military, and bad for president obama. >> thanks for that. >> in germany, greenpeace is calling for a fresh start in the search for a long term dump for nuclear waste. >> the environmental group says a new commission should be set up to consider a range of possible sites with maximum input from the public. it says that after years of controversy, the government should give up on the old salt mine that has been the longest running candidate. >> research into weather this underground site is the right place to store nuclear waste started 35 years ago. the protests against it are just as old. greenpeace says it is time to change tack and that the search for a storage site for nuclear waste should start from scratch with greater involvement by ordinary people. >> a permanent storage site can only work if there

thing to do. we know it will hurt the economy and we know it will destroy jobs. >> so the most bipartisanship we are seeing in the early hours of congress being back is about the fact both parties agree that something must be done, that they must work together and that's what voters were saying with their ballots last week. the hard part is how you get there. as you know, hill leaders will be at the white house on friday. conversations have been going on behind the scenes. sort of on an ongoing basis. the real work will become hammered out in december to decide it will be a short-term kind of solution or whether something longer, more enduring can be forged. lots of questions. a spirit of working together, but they are far apart in their basic outline of how they should be tackled to begin with. >> let me bring in congresswoman gwen moore of wisconsin. thank you so much for your time. >> thank you for having me. >> you heard kelly there. so close, but yet so far. what are your thoughts regarding at least the beginning stages of this conversation to deal with this so-called fisc

and higher jobless pen fit claims because the economy appears to be getting weaker and weaker. we face tax increases next year. that's been noted by business. there have been some layoffs prior to those tax increases. and so the underlying trend may be up. it has been exaggerated by hurricane sandy. gregg: stu, things could get worse january 1st, when all of these spending cuts and tax increases happen. it is so-called fiscal cliff. put it up on the screen. 158 million americans would be affected by this. the average household, $3500 a year in tax increases. you're talking about 88% of the households are going to see tax increases. if i read the cbo report correctly, they say this will drive us right back into another huge recession, right? >> well you've got two cbo reports. the one you're referring to says, yes, you go over that fiscal cliff, massive tax increases and big spending cuts. you will go into recession. a separate report looks just at what happens if we raise taxes on the top 2%. just on the rich, the top 2%. if we do that, we lose 200,000 jobs next year. factor that into the
economy. a modest tax increase on the wealthy is not going to break their backs. they will still be wealthy. >> one of the most frequent criticisms we've heard over the past few years from members on both sides is you haven't done enough to reach out and build relationships. are there concrete ways that you plan to approach your relationships with congress in a second term? >> look, i think there's no doubt i can always do better. i think all of us have responsibilities to see if there's things we can improve on and i don't exempt myself from needing to do some self-reflection and see if i can improve our working relationship. >> reporter: the president also said in that press conference that he's eager to pursue immigration reform and climate change policy, but charlie and norah he didn't give a timetable for when we would see any initiatives out of the white house on those issues. >> nancy cordes, thank you. cbs news political reporter john dickerson is in washington with me. good morning. good to be in washington. >> up reversed roles here. you're here and norah is in new york

"starting point" begins right now. >> look at me i'm whistling our theme song this morning. you're watching "starting point." the scandal, and it's spreading, is now engulfing two four-star generals. there are some new details about the woman who is at the center of it all. her name is jill kelley. she is described as a tammpy socialite. she first reported she's anonymous harassing e-mails to an fbi agent friend, and that ended up triggering an investigation. those e-mails eventually turned out to be sent by paula broadwell. that would be david petraeus' biographer. and eventually turned out his mistress, as well. we me
just consider mitt romney had won, he said he'd be focused exclusively on the economy, president-elect for a day and a half and then a sex scandal breaks out with his top generals. that would have been interesting to see how governor romney handled that moment. >> the other aspect of this story that i assume the country will get to, the media will get to quite quickly is the surveillance tape. i mean, this is pretty scary stuff. some of your e-mails to me and mine back to you, i don't want anybody reading them. >> yeah, that would be bad. you know, and it's interesting. here's the surveillance -- the architects of the surveillance tape caught up in the surveillance tape. that's the kind of thing that's so fascinating about it. >> but one of the fascinating degrees is the degrees to which broadwell and petraeus went to lengths to try and stop their e-mails being traced, by using this system of saving in the draft folder in their e-mail accounts and stuff. so they were clearly aware of the risk of being watched. and yet they still went ahead and sent e-mails on an extraordinary sca

the house. there's a question that most of us believe it would not be good for our economy to go over the fiscal cliff, that we have to resolve these issues, deal with what is the right tax policy, what is the right spending policy and how do we best grow the economy? i do think we have to stand firm. it's very clear we need new revenue and republicans are saying kind of the right tone but what they're actually saying is still no new revenue. it's got to come from economic growth from tax cuts. it's not a policy that's worked for this country before. it's not a policy we believe will work for this country going forward. we have to get it right. can we get it all done before the end of the year? not so sure about that. but we ought to make some decisions and set ourselves on a path to fiscal reality and fiscal responsibility in a way that makes sure we have a way to bring in new revenue to grow this economy and to protect the government spending that meets obligations to our seniors and to our future. that's a big lift for us to do in a few weeks. >> there's a growing sentiment to thos
